Jesus said the enemy is a thief who only comes to steal, kill, and destroy. The Bible says that when you catch a thief stealing from you, he must restore seven times what he took from you. Apply this to the devil when he steals from you. Exercise the authority Jesus gave you over the devil. Get into faith and put the enemy on notice. Hold him to account to repay you for what he steals from you. Remember that you are powerful in Christ and not a doormat. As the enemy sees that you mean it when you demand he repays, and that you have the faith to back it up, then he isn't going to want to steal from you anymore because it costs him too much.
People do not despise a thief If he steals to satisfy himself when he is starving. Yet when he is found, he must restore sevenfold; He may have to give up all the substance of his house. — Proverbs 6:30-31 (NKJV)
